Lamictal and Booze

You're not supposed to mix Lamictal and booze.  Alcohol, we are told, keeps these meds from working.  It makes our condition worse.  No booze for you!

I decided to have a beer last night with dinner.  I'm just a rebel, what can I say.

The result was that the dermatitis effects of the lamotrigine seemed worse -- I was kind of itchy.  Still, the rash that quietly showed up on Day 2 remains much diminished ... with the exception of a spot on my thighs where the seam of my jeans seems to rub on it.

Also, I slept REALLY well, but too long (10 hours instead of 8-9).

My mood though?  Fine.  Just fine, thanks.
